Cowdrey (1882, 7,910 feet) was named for homesteader Charles Cowdrey and his wife, Julia, who was killed by a board blown off their roof. This small cattle and supply town near the confluence of the North Platte, Michigan, and Canadian rivers is wrapped around the Cowdrey General Store, a two-story stucco building with vigas. Another exotic structure, .4 mile west of town, is a house made of three geodesic domes interconnected by a skin of pink stucco.
